Sustainable access to primary and secondary raw materials

Circularity is at the core of this ecosystem: Construction has made significant progress regarding the use of secondary raw materials, and this will continue to be a priority over the years to come. Equally, we will continue to depend on primary resources, to ensure a safe and steady supply of raw materials for the desired output. The updated EU Industrial Strategy has echoed this dependency on (domestic) raw materials while EU policies such as adaptation to climate change and the renovation wave will trigger an increased demand for additional construction raw materials and products.

A significant number of C2050 Alliance partners represent both primary and secondary raw material extracting and processing sectors, being involved at the beginning, during the lifetime of products and at the end of the built environment’s life cycle. The event EUConstruction 2050 includes a representative panel to share views of sectors about current and foreseeable challenges with raw material supply and present their suggestions on what is needed to contribute towards a digital and green recovery leading to climate neutrality by 2050.

Let’s discuss how to secure sustainable access to primary and secondary raw materials in the European construction sector.
